Window Tinting

I need a suggestion to get a tint

I have a Black car, usually very clean... and i wanted the same tint all around (or a 10% difference, so you cant notice it much.


I called around, and most places were $230-$300 for a lifetime warranty, seems kinda high.. but oh well.

Anyway, most people suggested 20% all around...

What do you think?

P.S. legal limit here is

50 front
35 back

The price sounds about right. Thats what the going price in the Twin Cities. See if they will do one the windows with both tints and pick the on you like.

I don't recommend to tint your windows yourself, it's a bitch when you never did it! i did it once and when it was the time to tint mine I got it done by a professional.

edit: BTW I'd get 35 all around just in case... at 20% the cops might find them too dark.

LOL yes, and it required something I didn't have......which is PATIENCE. I almost got one window done, stood back it looked like shit, tore it off and took everything back except for the half roll or so I cut up. If I have it done I'm having the pros do it for $180 at a local place that has a lifetime warranty.

I'm getting 100% LEGAL chrome tint today for $250CDN + tax at the best shop in town with lifetime manufacturers AND installation warranty. Still not sure what % to go with though (13% on the fronts is the legal limit here I think).......thinking about going either 20% all around or 15% all around.........MAYBE 15% on the front and 10% on the back.........NO WAY am I going 5% on the back can't see out of it at night :(

Regular dark tint (any %) is going for about $175 CDN ($120US) with lifetime manufacturers and installation warranty at nearly all the shops around here.

I have to admit, it's a bitch to backup at night but never had any problems! you have to use your side mirrors.

Hey RyanM, where in Wisconsin are you? I got my tinting done at a place called "Blackout Window Service" (414) 329-4000 on hwy 100 in Greenfield. I have 35% all the way around. I was recommended to this guy by a bunch of people. He does really good work. Unlike other tint places, he pulls the door panels and lays the tint below the top of the door panel. (that rubber seal). So the tint doesn't catch on the rubber when the window goes down. Total w/ tax $184.80. I had it done on 2/9/01 and it still looks like new!

Well the tint laws in Ontario are VAGUE at best.....basically I think the law is ABOUT 13% on the front windows and the back can be painted black if you want :p

Mine are 20% all around (but there is a damn scratch on the drivers window), going back to have it redone tomorrow :mad:
